5:35 am
3700 block of 36th avenue was indeed a murder-suicide which would lead us to believe that again, murder-suicide would lead you to believe that there are at least two victims involved here. it happened about 1:00 in the morning. it is still a very active scene. we were able to get some video around the backyard of the house. we had some information that perhaps one person may have been found in the backyard. there were reports that there were two small fires as well when investigators arrived. really no more than like something that was like some barbecue brickettes or that sort of thing, little fires next to the fence or next to the house. nothing that required a huge response from the prince george's county fire department. there also were alerts sent out by university of maryland because this is a community that is very connected to the campus and at that point, when university of maryland sent
5:36 am
their alerts out, they had also mentioned that there were suspects that fled in a tan honda odyssey so we are trying to kind of put those pieces together and see how those may be related. and it doesn't appear at this point that this home would involve any university of maryland students but you insofar know. it is possible because of all the connects here in college park to the campus. and the campus was also on high alert anyway because there had been a number of armed robberies that had gone on on campus and off campus involving students since the end of january. and so they certainly had stepped up patrols with university of maryland police being on the lookout for those sorts of things. so any report that there may have been a crime involving a gun certainly, they wanted to let students and campus community know but again, we are waiting here. we are supposed to be getting a briefing from prince george's county police shortly so we should be able to have more

5:46 am
here we go, 49 at reagan national. 41 this morning in leonardtown. 42 in salisbury. we shift gears and get out to virginia. temperatures are in the 40s as well. again, it is not a terribly cold morning. 41 in manassas. 43 in hagerstown and 45 in martinsburg. highs later today, low 50s. low to mid-50s. lots of sunshine. should feel pretty good. there will be a bit of a breeze here, particularly the first half of the day out of the west. looking at the satellite-radar. we're looking fine. high pressure will build in not did i today. that should give us a nice looking afternoon. plenty of sunshine expected around here for the day. i've got the wider picture up because i want to slow you our next storm taking shape and here it is in northern texas and oklahoma. this will get pushed up along the southern jet stream here and pushed towards the washington area later during the day tomorrow. so i think later tonight, we'll cloud up and during the afternoon tomorrow, we'll have a period of rain and/or snow across the area. best chance for snow will be washington, point north and west. and it is possible we could do some accumulating snow late
5:47 am
tomorrow afternoon and tomorrow night for parts of the area. much of the area will be rain, i'm afraid. i know that snow lovers are a little disappointed. here is the forecast for today. high pressure keeps things nice and dry. we'll watch the area of low pressure develop to the south. that pushes towards the area during the day tomorrow. i think we wake up with clouds tomorrow but by tomorrow afternoon, that rain-snow line setting up could end for most of us as a brief period of snow tomorrow night before the system wipes down. we could be talking about some assume lathes. still a little early to call how much we could get. i think a couple of inches is a possibility. this isn't a terribly strong storm but moving just to the south and east, it will be far enough away that it will hopefully drag enough cold air in for those of that you want snow will get a little bit tomorrow afternoon. 51 today, plenty of sunshine, breezy conditions. winds out of the west at 10 to 15. tonight, 33 the overnight low becoming cloudy and chilly over night. winds north at five to 10. tomorrow, definitely cloudy. certainly a period of rain and/or snow across the region
5:48 am
during the afternoon and evening. i think that evening rush hour tomorrow night could be a little slippery. and thursday, friday, sunshine and then we get cold dpep this weekend. could be another coastal storm this weekend. still a lot of question marks. can't quite tell what day it will arrive if it will arrive at all. stay tuned for the weekend forecast. okay. that is a look at your weather. let's do some traffic and find out what is happening with julie. you got your beads ?its a mardi gras. >> ma means it is fat tuesday. >> that means it is fat tuesday. >> yes, it is. >> that means lunch is on wisdom. >> the crew in sky fox has made their way over this accident activity on the ramp from westbound 32 to go northbound on 29. it is of overturned bach truck. we are told they offloaded that vehicle and now they have to get it back up on its wheels to get that ramp reopened. westbound 32, the ramp to go northbound remains closed. if you are traveling northbound on 29, all your lanes have been reopened. it is just the ramp that
